I learned a few weeks ago that a friend of mine from years ago was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I made this quilt for him & learned some great tricks along the way. Spray adhesive is awesome! I was able to sandwich & machine quilt like a charm; no puckers & no pinning. I also learned to machine quilt with the feed dogs up, I just set the presser foot tension on low. Fast & easy. I made this quilt in one week & worked 40 hours @ my 'other' job.
